Here you’ll find a list of words for kids.
If your little one has mastered letter names and letter sounds and can identify capital letters, the corresponding lower case letters, and letter sounds – you’re in the right place.
Now, it’s time for words. Little words. Big words. Kid words.
If your goal is to teach your child to read, consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words are a great place to begin followed by sight words.
Don’t worry if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, it’s likely that your little learner has already begun to learn the words he or she is hearing every day. You get the pleasure of introducing alphabet activities that support early literacy in a fun way.
